You will be sent an email with a Zoom link in the lead up to the interview date. Keep it in a place that is easily accessible on interview day.

On the interview day, ensure you are logged in to your Zoom account and that all your equipment is set up and working at least 20 minutes before the interview is schedule to start, so that you have time to resolve any technical issues beforehand. If you have forgotten your Zoom password, you can reset it by visiting

Ensure you have the reading material PDF downloaded onto your computer and opened in Adobe Reader ready for sharing.

Click the link in your email to join the interview. If you join before your start time, you will see a message that you are waiting for the host to start the meeting. If you join at the designated start time, you will arrive in the waiting room. An RACGP staff member will admit you and move you into the Interview Room ready for briefing.
